Khyber Ridge House
Designed by Studio NminusONE, this Whistler B.C. home offers incredible views of the surrounding landscape. Following the contours of the mountainside, occupants weave in and out of the sites terrain as they move through it’s five levels.
“In the winter, the flat roof of the living level retains the snow. The snow then acts as an insulating blanket keeping the temperature close to 0 degrees Celsius. In the summer, the flat roof becomes a necessary flat surface for outdoor living, leaving the rest of the sloped site intact.”
